One thought on “The INTP: Personality, Careers, Relationships, & the Quest for Truth and Meaning

  1. Stephen

    This is by far the most accurate and most helpful resource for the INTP personalty type that I have ever encountered It discusses all of the most meaningful topics for an INTP, and answers a lot of questions with sound arguments I can relate so much to what is in here regarding careers, relationships, social interaction, life in general It also addressed the development issues that INTPs find challenging, and some flaws that INTPs may not want to admit to And it does so from the voice of someone [...]

  2. Charity

    Short read, but gives a lot of insight into the INTP personality type and how our inferior functions wreak havoc in our life I could identify with a lot of it all but the secret romanticism, yet I suspect if I m honest with myself, that s true too so much so that I underlined about a zillion passages A smart, sincere read that highlights the pros and cons of the type.

  3. Cyn Bagley

    I have been misclassified as ISTP and INTJ When I read those personality types I couldn t see myself in them Finally in college when I was getting my Master s degree, I had the most accurate test yet I was classified as INTP Now over a decade later I have a book that tells me what it means Plus it was like Dr Drenth was reading my mind It was the first time I thought that the Meyer s Briggs test was something than a load of hooey Good read and the section on an inferior feeling Fe gave me insig [...]

  4. Cristian Baltoc

    Relationship dynamics are always complicated than a book can contain but this is a must read for anyone who is an INTP or who is in a relationship with one Establishing the basis of how INTPs think and interpret, their very important to them needs and wants beforehand can avoid a lot of unpleasant and tense situations in relationships A lot of people put little faith in the Myers Briggs typologies but, so far, I can definitely identify with a lot of the mental processes in my specific type Cate [...]

  5. Wasio Abbasi

    I have followed Personality Junkie website for a couple of years and reading this book has given me a whole new perspective As an INTP there are plenty of questions in my mind, majority of which made sense after reading this book.From the inner restlessness to careers and relations, this book covers all the important aspects of INTPs life and how they deal with them It doesn t treat everything in black and white, rather provide facts and some opinions especially in Relationship section that hel [...]

  6. Tom

    This is one of the most useful guides to the INTP Myers Briggs type currently available Drenth s work struck me as at times almost oracular in terms of insights and how did it know that about me revelations, and for that reason alone would be a useful read for INTPs and those seeking to know about them The breadth of the book is also remarkable, covering the theory behind the INTP, then showing how it applies in a wide variety of life areas, including relationships and careers It is unfortunate [...]

  7. Annie

    This is super effin creepy I expect many nuances because typology tends to be generalization but damn, this book describes me to a T I gotta share this book with some people who are baffled by how I think.

  8. Manuel

    I really enjoyed this little book about the INTP personality type I would say I fit 90% of what the author described were the strengths and weaknesses of the Architects It was like I was reading my autobiography It s worthy of a second reading.

  9. Andrew Lord

    In many ways, reading this was pretty much like looking myself in the mirror, with some interesting insights that enabled a deeper dive into my inner motivations Yes, sorry to everyone out there, but I do love discussing ideas and theories in extreme depth FAR than day to day what did you do today small talk Please don t take it personally.As with any book based off a single personality test no matter how accurate the test , take some of it with a grain of salt A standard INTP is not likely to [...]

    Being very INTP, I find psychology typology is an absolutely amazing tool to explore yourself and maximise your potentials Most of the book is accurate in explaining many of my tendencies and the underlying drivers behind them, and also gives very good advices Some parts of the book though I find is quite biased but understandable considering it s impossible to generalise human being s complex nature.

  11. Stephanie Kruk

    Reading this gave me the eerie feeling someone had set up camp in my brain and taken notes It s influence in helping me better grasp the effects of functional stacking particularly inferior Fe can t be rated highly enough Because of this book, I finally understand what I need to do to reach personal fulfillment and I m changing my career path, pursuing typology counseling rather than Human Resources.

  12. Trevor Kononenko

    Solid book overall, concise and informational, alhough maybe a tad dry A lot of the research is bits I already read on personalityjunkie helps to be read if you already know parts of Jungian psychology like functional stacks and MBTI fundamentals.

  13. Ahmed Lahlou

    The book is good at explaining and describing thought processes, but fails in terms of giving advice on how to improve as an INTP Very much theoretical, not much concrete action.

  14. Samuel Rødal

    Highly recommended reading for INTPs and people who interact closely with them Scary how closely it matches my own experiences.

  15. Seamusin

    To be considering this book, most likely either you or your partner has typed as an INTP Either way you could get a lot out of this book The writing is clear and packed with insight on every aspect of life, as its subtitle aptly suggests If you haven t already, I d recommend checking out Drenth s writing read one or two of the introductory posts to the theory personalityjunkie typology Then have a quick look at his page on INTPs personalityjunkie the intp Don t read too far if the writing and ty [...]

  16. Thomas

    Very interesting read for INTPs I find it both comforting and concerning that the human mind has been studied so thoroughly that I can be broken down into an archetype that fits me so well It has comforted me to know that there is logic to some of my seemingly irrational thoughts and feelings, but I m concerned that this type of knowledge can be and is commonly used to control the public at large Anyway, I loved it Very insightful This book definitely helped me along my path to enlightenment.

  17. Brock

    How can I make sense of the world if I don t understand myself This is a great resource for INTP s who want to navigate a path to a meaningful life, and as this book explains, all INTP s are searching for truth and meaning That makes this an essential book for all the INTPs out there all 70M of us.

  18. Laura Kinch

    Best INTP book description advice I ve read Spent the whole time reading it alternating between dang I m awesome and oh oh that s why I do that crud Must read if you re an INTP or are want to date one.

  19. Brian Graybeal

    Required reading for all INTPsGreat tool for realizing I m not entirely crazy I m glad to know there are out there with similar drives and needs Now, to get my wife to read and understand, while I go spend time alone thinking.

  20. Anthony Nirvana

    Very accurate but expected I thought there was going to be talking about the mundane stuff that we have to go through as INTPs It was a good read though.

  21. Jeremy

    You won t find a better book about INTP s out there Drenth freaked me out a little by how accurately he anatomized the life and struggles of this personality type.

  22. Sara

    While full of little inconsistencies which turned on my INTP doubt, this book is the best book on personality theories I have read so far But I plan to read many in my life.

  23. Rachel

    I only read the sample of this but I felt like someone was wording what I never could It had me nodding, smiling and agreeing at almost every point.
